Hi I'm Brandon

I grew up in Utah, I am serving a mission in the Columbus Ohio Area, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a missionary. I'm serving in the Columbus Ohio Area. I graduated high school in 2014. I love playing guitar and the ukelele. I like listening to music. I love to help people out with almost anything! I was a life guard before I came on my mission, and the Captain of my high school swim team. I love meeting new people and having new adventures!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've come to know through my own experiences that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ. It's the only one that has the fulness of His gospel. I had the great blessing of being born into a family that was already rooted in this Faith, and being a Mormon has only brought me happiness!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply trying to be an example. I work hard and love doing it, as a missionary we dedicate 2 years of our lives to serving the Lord. We serve the Lord by being examples, and by serving those people in the areas that we are called to go to on our mission. As Missionaries we leave our families, friends, and home to come and teach people about the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. We invite everyone to come closer to Christ through their own actions, by living those principles that the Savior himself taught!

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Brandon
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is often referred to as Mormons or Mormonism because of our belief in the Book of Mormon, a book of ancient scripture that was found and translated by the Prophet Joseph Smith. The Book of Mormon goes hand in hand with the teachings of the Bible and expands our understanding. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Brandon
New members of the Mormon faith are baptized because through that ordinance of baptism, we make promises with God who in turn promises us something. We call this promise a covenant. When we get baptized we promise take upon ourselves the name of Christ, and become a follower of Christ, and to keep his commandments. If we keep our promises, God in turn has promised to forgive our sins and let us return to live with him. Show more Show less
